Toché scored the Real Oviedo goal in a very professional performance from Anquela’s side, against a Cádiz team who had arrived top of the table
Real Oviedo produced one of their most complete performances of the season against what was, according to the table, their toughest opponent. Cádiz arrived top of the table, although they were, similarly to Real Oviedo, suffering many injuries. Real Oviedo made just one change to the starting eleven that took to the field at El Molinón, with Aarón replacing Mossa.
Real Oviedo had the early chances in the match, first through Christian Fernández and then through Saúl Berjón, who twice went close. Berjón’s first shot from the edge of the box grazed the post, before he fired a rebound over the bar. Real Oviedo dominated possession throughout, pinning Cádiz back, and not allowing them to get close to Juan Carlos’ goal at any point.
In the second half, Anquela’s team once again came flying out of the blocks, and Real Oviedo’s coach wasted little time in making changes and bringing on Owusu and Linares. The goal arrived shortly afterwards, with Toché controlling Saúl Berjón’s perfect through ball and beating Cifuentes. It would prove to be the only goal and give Real Oviedo victory at the Carlos Tartiere. Cádiz reacted in the final moments and tested Juan Carlos slightly, but he kept the clean sheet without too much difficulty. Saúl Berjón had the final Real Oviedo chance, with his powerful strike grazing the bar.
The crowd gathered at El Tartiere finished the game with a chorus of the Real Oviedo club song. The fans showed their perfect union with their team, who had once more given their all and been rewarded in the form of three points and another victory.
